Rangers midfielder Niko Kranjcar has shared that he believes his teammate, Josh Windass, is good enough to play in the Premier League one day.

Windass is currently thought to be interesting Championship sides Sheffield United and Preston as they eye promotion to the Premier League, according to the Scottish Sun.

League One leaders Wigan, according to Football Insider, are also keen on making a January move for the attacking midfielder.

However Kranjcar who has played 154 Premier League games, revealed that Windass is capable of playing at the highest-level in England in the future.

“He has improved and he’s getting better and better every single day,” said Kranjcar, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“The important thing is the confidence and with the talent he’s got, both physical and on the ball, I think he has a very bright future ahead of him.

“I’m sure he will be good enough to play in the Premier League in the future.”

The Croatian midfielder also gave his opinion on the transfer speculation surrounding Windass, stating it was the club and 24-year-old’s decision, but that he was happy to give advice.

Windass has played 24 games across all competitions for the Gers this season, scoring six goals and grabbing five assists.

OPINION

Windass is really starting to showcase his talents as an attacking midfielder, and it would be a shame if Rangers didn’t see the best of him. While Kranjcar believes that in the future the 24-year-old will be ready for the Premier League, that still seems a long way off. It could be argued that moving to England now and competing in the Championship brings him closer to a Premier League move, but staying at Rangers could be the correct decision. Windass has really started to improve and a move could disrupt his development. Hopefully Kranjcar feels the same and provides him with that advice.
